Seven Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools students were recognized Tuesday for making good choices and “doing the right thing” during a ceremony and celebration at Discovery Place.
The winners were chosen from dozens of nominations from teachers, principals, police officers and members of the community. The seven students selected for recognition distinguished themselves for their exemplary behavior and for making sometimes difficult decisions, including standing up to bullies and turning in money found on the ground.
This is the 18th year for Do the Right Thing, which is a partnership between the Charlotte Fire Department, the Mecklenburg County Sheriff’s Office, the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department and CMS.
